Re: “Learning Through Landscapes

I am so pleased to see Manzo Elementary receive well-deserved recognition for its innovative science program. I am saddened and appalled by the casual condemnation of the Barrio Hollywood neighborhood surrounding Manzo as being "crime-infested". I challenge Mr Alcaraz to provide evidence of this baseless assertion.

If you go to the Tucson Police website--http://cms3.tucsonaz.gov/police/stats--and check the city map for crimes reported in the past 30 days, you will find none in the interior of Barrio Hollywood, which is bordered by Speedway Boulevard, Grande Avenue, Saint Mary's Road and Silverbell Road. Then zoom out and check several other neighborhoods. You will see that Barrio Hollywood is far less burdened by crime than many other Tucson neighborhoods.

I have gotten to know and appreciate Barrio Hollywood as I have helped several social activists and environmentalists purchase homes here. I am in the process of purchasing a house in Barrio Hollywood for myself. Many fine families have called Barrio Hollywood home for generations. Mr Alcaraz's remark about crime unfairly stigmatizes a great neighborhood that has become even more attractive because of the marvelous programs at Manzo Elementary.

As a REALTOR, I am prohibited from making disparaging remarks about the crime rate of a neighborhood. Journalists should also avoid creating hurtful and inaccurate impressions about the places where people make their homes.

Thank you for an otherwise well-written article that highlights the outstanding work of some of Tucson's finest educators and students.
